We anticipated the news a few weeks ago, and now it's official. After a 42-year absence, MV Agusta returns to the world championship, ready to take to the Moto2 tracks in 2019 together with the Forward Racing Team. In recent months, Castiglioni and Cuzari have worked long and hard on the project, the bike set to make its track debut in July.
The manufacturer's president is ready for this new challenge: “MV Agusta is the most successful brand in history of motorcycling" - said Giovanni Castiglioni, President of MV Agusta - The return of MV Agusta to the Grand Prix is a great honor for me. The Moto2 World Championship is very competitive and in order to be successful we need to apply the best of our technology and experience in racing motorcycle development".
"The dream of bringing MV Agusta back to the World Championship was born with Claudio Castiglioni, to whom I have always been linked by deep esteem and friendship, and the dream came true with his son Giovanni" said Giovanni Cuzari, Forward Racing Team CEO .
Team Forward CEO Giovanni Cuzari is also extremely pleased: “"I find it difficult to express with words what this means, to be actively part of a common project with both MV Agusta and CRC, the two Italian excellences that created the most beautiful motorcycles in history.
The Forward boss has dedicated time and energy to the project, which now finally sees the light: “I worked many years for this to happen, and now I feel proud to announce that MV Agusta will race in the Moto2 World Championship with Forward Racing Team. I am also aware of the great responsibility involved in having such a prestigious brand on the sides of our motorbikes. Our team, along with MV Agusta and CRC, will strive to achieve, in the shortest possible time, what all the fans, and we first, expect and dream".
